This is the fifth joint concert the pair has announced. Joel and Nicks first shared they’d be performing at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, TX on Saturday, April 8, 2023. They followed that announcement with a joint show on March 10th at SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles and at then March 19th at Nashville’s Nissan Stadium. Last week, the music legends announced a Columbus, OH show at Ohio Stadium on Saturday, August 5th. Each spectacular one-night-only show marks the first time the two have ever performed on the same stages in each city.

New York’s quintessential son, Billy Joel, is one of the greatest musicians of our time. Joel ranks as one of the most popular recording artists and respected entertainers in history. The singer, songwriter, and composer is the sixth best-selling recording artist of all time and the third best-selling solo artist. Joel’s songs have acted as personal and cultural touchstones for millions of people across five decades.

Joel’s biggest hits include “Uptown Girl,” “Just The Way You Are,” “The Longest Time,” and “Vienna,” among others. In 2016, the Library of Congress selected “Piano Man” for preservation in the National Recording Registry for its “cultural, historic, and artistic significance.” Joel is also the recipient of six Grammy Awards, including the prestigious Grammy Legend Award. Joel has received the RIAA’s Diamond Award twice for Greatest Hits Volume I & Volume II and The Stranger. Joel has been inducted into the Songwriter’s Hall of Fame, the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and has received numerous industry awards, including a Tony Award for Movin’ Out, a Broadway musical based on Joel’s music.

In December 2013, Joel was named Madison Square Garden’s first-ever music franchise, joining the ranks of the storied venue’s other original franchises – the New York Knicks and New York Rangers. The record-breaking residency began in January 2014 with Joel playing one show every month at The Garden, “as long as the demand continues,” says Joel. He continues through March 2023 with his 89th monthly and 135th lifetime show at The World’s Most Famous Arena.

Legendary singer, songwriter and storyteller Stevie Nicks is one of rock and roll’s most successful, inimitable, and groundbreaking artists. As a multi-platinum, Grammy Award winning solo artist and member of Fleetwood Mac, she is the first woman to have been inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame twice and has collectively sold more than 140 million albums. Having captivated audiences for decades with her iconic live performances, distinctive songwriting, and constant cultural influence, Nicks continues to be an inspiration and mentor to younger performers. A member of Fleetwood Mac since 1974, the band’s enduring spirit stands for an incredible body of music – including Rumours, one of the best-selling albums of all time – that has connected with generations of people all over the world for more than 50 years. In October 2020, Stevie Nicks 24 Karat Gold The Concert was released at select cinemas, drive ins and exhibition spaces around the world for two nights only. The sold-out film offered audiences a virtual front row seat to the magic Nicks brought on her sold out 24 Karat Gold Tour.
